    Attendees of a Donald Trump presidential rally in San Jose, California were set upon and beaten by anti-Trump “protesters” this past week. Mayor Sam Liccardo blamed the candidate. “I personally would never physically attack a political opponent,” Liccardo reassured. “But neither am I ready to absolve Trump for his role in provoking the violence. California was once part of Mexico before it was illegally seized by the United States in 1848. Donald Trump hasn’t denounced this thievery. To the contrary, he has stridently threatened to eject Mexicans who are trying to repatriate this territory.” “San Jose is a sanctuary city,”...

    In an on-air interview with KVI-AM’s morning host John Carlson in Seattle on Wednesday, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump blasted the idea of so-called “sanctuary cities,” and said that as president, he would withhold funding from those cities. He called such cities “a haven for criminals.” “We have to have law and order in our country,” Trump said. “We have no law and order. When you look at the people who are pouring in and the borders are so porous. “I want people to come into the country a hundred percent,” he explained, “but they have to come in legally....

    Rev. Fred Morris is familiar with violence in Latin America. Morris, currently leading North Hills United Methodist Church, survived detention and torture at the hands of Brazil's military dictatorship in 1974. That's one reason Morris said he's ready to defy Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials and offer his place of worship as a refuge for Central Americans facing imminent deportation to a region with escalating violence. "We are willing to fight this tooth and nail," said Morris, 82. "If ICE wants to come get them, they're going to have to break down the church door." Morris' congregation is one of...

    Embattled San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi convincingly lost his bid for re-election Tuesday after spending months in the national spotlight as the face of his city's controversial "sanctuary city" policy on illegal immigration. Mirkarimi, 54, was defeated by Vicki Hennessy, a former sheriff's official who had the endorsement of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and the sheriff deputies association. With 42 percent of precincts reporting, Henessy had received 63 percent of the vote to 31 percent for Mirkarimi. Mirkarimi and his office received heavy criticism after Mexican illegal immigrant Francisco Sanchez allegedly shot and killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle on San...

    CHARLOTTE, NC - Gov. Pat McCrory's signing Wednesday of a bill that would prohibit N.C. municipalities from becoming "sanctuary cities" may force Charlotte to remove language in a civil rights resolution that prohibits police from asking about immigration status. House Bill 318, the Protect North Carolina Workers Act, could also affect Charlotte's efforts to create a municipal ID. Under the new law, municipalities can create their own IDs, but they cannot be recognized by local governments. One exception is that police can use the ID if it's the only way to identify someone. Charlotte council members support a Charlotte-specific ID...

    The White House on Tuesday vowed to veto a bill designed to prevent sanctuary city deaths like the July killing of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco, saying the solution is to legalize illegal immigrants, not to force cities and counties to cooperate in deporting them. In a state of policy, the Office of Management and Budget said if Congress won’t pass a bill legalizing illegal immigrants, it should butt out and let President Obama carry out his own policies, which include narrowing the number of illegal immigrants he deems worthy of deporting. And he said trying to force local police...

    In a long overdue reaction to the mounting tally of victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens, the US House of Representatives enacted the "Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act." The bill would block federal law-enforcement grants to cities that refuse to enforce federal immigration laws. The vote for the bill was highly partisan with Republicans heavily in favor and Democrats heavily opposed. Mocking the bill as "the Donald Trump Act," Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif), the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, called the legislation "illogical. Sanctuary cities bear a disproportionate burden of the crimes committed by undocumented inhabitants....

The Republican Party, hoping to lure more Hispanic voters, had not planned to focus on illegal immigration or border security during the 2016 election cycle, but that changed when Trump uttered the now infamous words about Mexican immigrants during his June 16 entry into the GOP race.

    There’s no mystery about why Democrats resist enforcing our immigration laws. A new “sanctuary cities” map from the Center for Immigration Studies goes a long way toward explaining why open-borders Democrats are so addicted to flouting our immigration laws. When you consider the political makeup of the cities, counties, and states where illegal aliens are welcomed, you start to suspect that the liberal elite in San Francisco and elsewhere aren’t interested only in cheap nannies and gardeners. For them, pulling in more illegal aliens is, perhaps first and foremost, about pumping up their political power. The Census Bureau includes aliens...

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement report — obtained by an organization that actively opposes illegal immigration — said the re-arrested immigrants were among 8,145 people who were freed between January and August 2014 despite requests from federal agents that they be held for deportation. A fatal shooting in San Francisco has heated up a long-running debate between those who want police to help immigration agents to...

    More than 200 cities, counties, and states across the United States are considered sanctuaries that protect criminal aliens from deportation by refusing to comply with ICE detainers or otherwise impede open communication and information exchanges between their employees or officers and federal immigration agents. These state and local jurisdictions have policies, laws, executive orders, or regulations to this effect. These sanctuary policies obstruct federal law authorizing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to administratively deport illegal aliens without seeking criminal warrants or convictions from federal, state, or local courts. Although federal regulations plainly require cooperation, the federal government has...

    Weeks of financial backlash for his disturbing comments calling Mexican immigrants "rapists" and murderers have failed to slow down Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's stride. If anything, he's getting worse. During speeches on Saturday in Phoenix, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada, Trump brought on Jamiel Shaw Sr., the father of a 17-year-old boy who was killed by an undocumented immigrant in July 2008, to make the case for his proposal to build a giant wall on the border with Mexico. Trump is tripling down on the anti-immigrant rhetoric: Shaw related the tragic tale of his son's death but made time...

    “In Texas, we have a long history of welcoming immigrants from all over the world, immigrants who have helped make our economy the strongest in the country,” former Texas governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry said today. “It’s not fair that some people try to jump the immigration line by coming across our border illegally. One of the core responsibilities of the federal government is to secure the border. As the recent tragedy in San Francisco has shown us, it’s important for the federal government and local governments to be able to cooperate to apprehend illegal immigrants with criminal histories....

    During a discussion on Thursday’s “The Kelly File” about the murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco by an illegal alien, host Megyn Kelly asked left-leaning radio talk show host Richard Fowler why resident Obama has ignored the killing; after having spoken out on the deaths of Michael Brown, Freddie Gray and others. When Fowler wouldn’t answer the question, Kelly was all over him. She began by referring to the death of Brown: “His funeral saw three Obama officials in attendance,” she noted. “His death drew comments from resident Obama personally, and the administration sent in the DoJ and 40...

    This tragic story has gone national and the blame game along with the finger pointing has started. Adachi(Public Defender) and Mirkarimi(SF Sheriff)are blaming the federal government and ICE but it was not the federal government that made San Francisco a sanctuary city. That was done by local politicians decades ago and has been reinforced by many current politicians including Adachi and Mirkarimi. Bottom line is a young innocent woman has been murdered in cold blood, in front of her father, by a 5 time deported illegal alien drug dealer. He is an ILLEGAL ALIEN not an undocumented immigrant and if...

    After years of protecting and supporting sanctuary cities across the country, which allow illegal aliens to evade federal immigration laws, Senator Diane Feinstein and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton are trying to save face in light of the killing of 32-year-old Kate Steinle by illegal alien Francisco Sanchez in San Francisco last week. Sanchez admitted in a jailhouse interview that he went to San Francisco after being deported five times because he knew he wouldn't be turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “I strongly believe that an undocumented individual, convicted of multiple felonies and with a detainer request from...

    July 7, 2015 Donald Trump Was Rightby John Hinderaker For the last week, I have intended to write about Donald Trump’s observation that some illegal immigrants are rapists–or, rather, about the crazed over-reaction to Trump’s undeniably true observation. We have written many times about outrages committed by illegals who should have been deported long before they finally committed crimes so horrific as to attract nationwide notice. Darron Wint and Francisco Sanchez are two recent instances of immigrants who would have been deported under any sane immigration system, but who, left undisturbed by the powers that be, eventually committed appalling murders....

    "Even after repeated attempts by President Obama and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to reform our immigration laws, Republicans in Congress have blocked those efforts, unfortunately, leaving cities and local municipalities to act upon immigration issues that affect its residents. I will continue to work with the Obama Administration on Comprehensive Immigration Reform to ensure cities aren’t forced to make and enforce immigration law."
